Faced with a question about which municipalities bear the brunt of the cost of enforcing proof of vaccination rules, Ford did not commit to details but pledged he would find financial help for municipal governments.
âWe’ve been supporting municipalities from day one, just like the federal government,â Ford said. “We’re going to be there for them. I’ll try to get every penny I can from the federal government.”
